Do you want to receive college credit for fire service certifications you already have? The University of Memphis recently revised its list of pre-approved courses/certifications that allow students in the program to receive experiential college credits toward their bachelor degree in Fire Administration of Fire Protection Technology.

Why do we award college credit for your accredited fire certifications? Because of the similarities in the review process, the third party evaluation, and the fact that the certifications are based on applicable National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Professional Qualifications Minimum Standards, and they have an evaluation component, accredited courses have been added to the pre-reviewed and approved experiential learning list.
